That’s a beautiful girl

“She’s real beautiful,” my ride share passenger said. “It’s great to see beautiful people. And you know what, you’re beautiful too with your red hair and big eyes.”

“Thanks,” I said.

“You watch Tik Tok?”


“You know, I don’t Like social media but sometimes I think you need a presence online,ya know? In case someone wants to ask ‘you good?’”

“Oh yeah.”

“And thanks for stopping at Caribou. Oh, and turning back when the liquor store was closed. Sometimes you just need a Paps in the morning, ya know?”

“You from Minnesota?” I asked.

“Oh yeah sure ya betcha. And you know I always loved Minnesota but now I’m disappointed in it. I’m disappointed about how we’re handling these protests.”

God help us.
